The concept of community is becoming more and more alien. We're cancelling nights out with our pals to stay in and tweet. Making eye contact is now a borderline obscene gesture. Instagram has replaced Christmas. As we rely more and more on our own awful brains for companionship, songs like Jonathan Rado's “Seven Horses,” with its hoary organs and communal sway, touch on a kind of nostalgia that's becoming increasing vital. It's nothing that his band Foxygen aren't well-acquainted with, but it feels just a little bit less wry here, like we could actually find solace in the song's mesquite-scented revelry.
